The South Kensington Campus area can get very busy during Arrivals Weekend, so all students intending to arrive by car or cab are advised to review the College’s ‘Traffic Management Plan’ below.

Those arriving for our Eastside and Southside Halls will be required to enter Prince’s Gardens from the north side and then proceed around the one-way system (denoted by red arrows on the plan). On the day, there will be marshals who can help to direct you around Prince’s Gardens to your hall. There will be limited parking outside your hall for you to unload (approx. 10 mins) after which you will be required to drive the short distance to Imperial’s car parking facility where you may park for up to two hours using a voucher that can be obtained from your Hall Warden on moving-in day.

Please note that vehicles parked for off-loading purposes outside Beit Hall in Prince’s Consort Road should not be left unattended at any time, otherwise vehicle owners risk being issued with an automated parking ticket courtesy of the local authority parking enforcement cameras.
